Creative Circle Blog Hop July 2016

Hello crafty friends, and welcome to the next blog hop of the Creative Circle Design Team. I am still so thrilled to be a part of this talented group. This month we are showcasing the Sara D. purse that Liz Holloway designed and created for us to use with our Silhouette cameo machines, which is absolutely amazing! I can’t believe the time and effort she put into creating this design, and she created a You Tube video for us to follow to be about to put it together properly. (When you hop over to her page you will learn why it’s called the Sara D. purse). When I was trying to figure out what color schemes to use, and learning how to use my new e-machine, I decided to use the Affectionately Yours Suite of products by Stampin’ Up! (found on pages 44-45 of the new 2016-17 Annual Catalog… all products used are listed below).

How adorable is this purse?? It is very roomy inside, which would make this an awesome gift bag (make-up, jewelry, gift cards, and of course Stampin’ Up! supplies will fit very nicely inside!)

Here you can see that I fit the stamp set I used and all six note cards with envelopes inside the Sara D. purse, with room to spare!

My first step was to cut out all the pieces (Liz sent us 5 silhouette files that I imported into my library) with the designer paper and card stock I decided to use for this project.

Assembly was a breeze with our Tombow mono-adhesive glue (“green glue”) and our awesome Tear-n-Tape!

Liz recommended using our grid paper as a guide- it is very important to assemble the purse correctly so it is symmetrical and even on all sides.

All six note cards- each one is slightly different. I made three with our whisper white note cards and three with our crumb cake note cards.

Here is a close up of how I was able to get three colors on this small flower image- I stamped the whole image in daffodil delight ink pad, then with a q-tip, I removed the yellow ink where I then used the Stampin’ write markers to “color” the watermelon wonder and cucumber crush ink onto the image, then with a “huff” of my breath (to moisten the marker ink- which dries quickly), then stamped my image. Love this color combo!

Here is my new Silhouette cameo machine- I had to rearrange my office area a bit, and moved my computer tower so everything would work correctly. There were lots of great You Tubes videos to help me get started. The Sara D. purse was my very first project with my new machine. What do you think? I’d love to hear from you, please leave me a comment. thanks!

So excited to reveal that Stampin’ Up! has a super summer special for all of us! YIPPEE!! Here’s the details:

While hosts and new demonstrators got to party it up in June with their Extra Stampin’ Rewards and Starter Kits with free stamps, we’ve been preparing a special deal so shoppers could have their own reason to party: Bonus Days!

Creative Circle June 2016 Blog Hop

Hi there stamping friends! I am so excited about joining Liz Holloway’s amazing Creative Circle Design Team! Thank you for having me Liz and I look forward to learning about my new Silhouette Cameo that I purchased (but haven’t had time to hook up yet) so I can enter the world of electronic-cutters. So very thrilled to join Liz, Sandy, and Carol this month.

One of the thrills of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting to pre-order product before the new catalog goes live. As you know, I also received a lot of new product when I was in Salt Lake City for the OnStage event in April. I’m happy to say I have enjoyed playing with my goodies, and today I am showing you a coordinating card and 3D item. I would love for you to leave me a comment at the bottom of this post before you hop on to all the other ladies blog posts.

First up is this fun Marquee Style Birthday Card, this can be customized with any colors you’d like. I used the softer Very Vanilla card stock for the base of this card and knew that the marquee cut out would look amazing against a brick wall backdrop, do you agree?

I sponged the brick wall piece of card stock with soft suede to give it a grunge look. I peeled the back of the glimmer paper off so I could stamp the little marquee stars and easily cut them out.

IMG_4332

Can you see the gold shimmer inside the arrow? That luscious gold is from the Wink of Stella Gold pen, love how easy it is to apply!

IMG_4385

Next up is my 3D project- I thought a fun curvy keepsake box with balloons, In-Color highlight and more gold would be super fun, and best part is, I just wedged the arrow and balloons (on a piece of window sheet) within the handles, no glue used, so you can pull them out to open the box and get the goodies. I think these would be adorable for favors at a kids birthday party- what do you think?
